You know all about recycling, but did you know that recycled items can make great art? For the fourth year, the Zoological Society is hosting an eco-themed art contest for members of the Kids Conservation Club and animal sponsors (ages 17 and under). Get a prize just for participating! Here’s how it works: Kids can pick any kind of discarded materials, such as soda cans. Then, create an art project using these recycled materials only (tape and glue are okay). New this year: we are adding a "Saving Endangered Species" theme. Create your project around this theme by choosing an endangered animal(s) you would like to highlight in your art project.
Parents, fill out the form online or download the entry form to print off and mail in by Aug. 8. Projects will be displayed at the Milwaukee County Zoo on Aug. 23 at Animal Safari, sponsored by Welch’s and Pick ‘n Save. This is a behind-the-scenes event for animal sponsors. We’ll have first- and second-place prizes such as plush toys and animal sponsorships. Plus, all art contest participants will receive a participation prize. Please see the updated contest guidelines for important information.
